I studied Medicine and completed the training in Neurosurgery in Italy (equivalent to the M.B. Ch.B. and the FRCS). In 2009 I completed a research Fellowship in microneurosurgical anatomy at Mercer University, Georgia, USA.
In 2011 I moved to King’s College Hospital in London where I performed a Fellowship in Surgical Neurooncology. I have a special clinical interest in the surgical treatment of benign and malignant brain tumours. I provide advanced neurosurgical techniques including intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring and mapping during both asleep and awake craniotomies; moreover, I perform fluorescence-guided surgery. I also routinely perform neurosurgical procedures in trauma patients and deal with general neurosurgical conditions.
I am a member of the Genomic tumour advisory board at the West Midlands Genomic Medicine Centre in Birmingham. I am working towards introducing Genomic Medicine at UHNM. I am actively involved in training both undergraduate students from Keele University and postgraduate trainees. I sit on the Surgical Training Committee for neurosurgical trainees for Health Education England West Midlands.
